Hi, had a question about version control in Kerio Workspace. I upload a Word document onto a page for 2 people to review and modify. Both users sync and open the document in their Kerio desktop, make changes and then upload it back to the workspace. It doesn't look to me like there is any mechanism that stops them from over-writing each other's changes? Is this true or are we doing something wrong where there is no "checkout" of the document to stop someone else from changing it at the same time as another user? Thank you for any insights.

If you open the file ("Edit on My Computer") while other user already opened it, you will get the following message:

It isn't possible to edit the document because it was already opened by user:
Use "View" mode to read the document or wait until the user closes the document.

@secure_1: File sync kind of negates the possibility of file checkout, unless the application you are using is smart enough to detect that the version of disk is not the same version that was just synch'd from the server. The solution that Lucian outlined may be more appropriate for that. With file sync, basically the "last man wins"

Here, we use file sync mostly for documents that are read-only to most of the users.
